The NZK Series of low-profile pneumatic cylinders combine high power characteristics with minimum dimensions, and are low in profile yet rugged. Low-friction operation is achieved by using pistons with a separate guidance band for minimum starting pressures and stable, supported movement. The cylinders are available in double-acting, single-acting normally retracted, and single-acting normally extended configurations, with double- or single-acting designs and standard or longer stroke lengths up to 20 inches.
